Hi finehout!

No, you only need the windows 2000 CD to install windows 2000 on your computer. Just put the cd in your drive, reboot the computer and when you see the [b]press any key to boot from cd...[/b[ message, press a key and setup will start. If this message doesn't appear, then you need to go into your computer's BIOS and change the BOOT ORDER so that your CD-ROM is booted before your hard drive.
